The Rise Of 'killer' Software

Who lives or dies!!

 

We all know that many modern medical tools rely on sophisticated software

to perform their magic in life-saving and life-threatening situations.

However, it's now software that's being asked to decide, quite literally,

whether someone lives or dies.

 

Sound like a science-fiction fantasy? Maybe something from

Huxley's 'Brave New World' or a Vonnegutt novel?

It may have started that way, but with increased frequency,

computer programs are being asked to make life or death decisions

because of their intrinsic impartiality.

Ijar,

 

If you quote someone or an article, it is only appropriate to cite the source of the statements or wrap them in quotes and put the name of the author afterwards. Unless your nom de plume is Kurt D. Lynn then it's another story.

 

You extracted the statements from an article in infopackets windows newsletter.
